Abhay Singh Chautala resigns from Haryana Assembly over farm laws

Chandigarh: Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) legislator Abhay Singh Chautala on Wednesday resigned from Haryana Assembly in support of the farmers protesting in the national capital against the three contentious farm laws.

57-year-old Chautala arrived in a tractor outside the Vidhan Sabha at Chandigarh to submit his resignation.

The Haryana Vidhan Sabha speaker Gian Chad Gupta has accepted the resignation. His resignation comes a day after the massive farmers' rally-turned-into-ruckus in Delhi.

In the letter to the Speaker, Chautala had slammed the government for imposing the 'black laws' on farmers in an 'undemocratic way' and said the farming community in the entire country is opposing these legislations.
